The objective of the project is to collect and convey groundwater and storm water runoff from the Dubai World Central area (about 135 km2) and adjacent communities (about 245 km2). The drainage system of the tunnel needs to be strong enough to cope with increasing urbanisation, severe rainfall and high-level groundwater. This groundbreaking tunnel will tackle both rainwater and groundwater, and will drain almost 40% of the entire urban area of Dubai and including the flagship project Dubai South, with Al Maktoum International Airport, the World Expo site and several other emerging developments.
